WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. A -new wage and working agreement was signed late today between the rail road administration and officials of the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes and Railway Shop La borers. ' While demands of the union were not fully met, the eight-hour basic day was established for track labor ers and others of that classification, and time and a half pay after eight hours was provided. Most of the other employes included under the agreement will receive time and a half overtime pay after 10 hours Signing of the new contract by Director-General Hines ended nego tiations' Which have been in progress since February. Approximately 400, 000 men are affected, railroad ad min iat rat ion officials estimated. The contract also provides that it shall be applicable during the period of federal control unless notice of 30 days is given of iCs cancellation. "Specifically," an announcement by Mr. Mines says, "the new contract provides overtime for regular section laborers and other employes in this classification except laborers in extra or floating gangs, whose employment VIKING ANCESTRY IS SCOUTED First White Explorers Held Accountable for Markings.

In full view of the immigration j committee of the house, which is in vestigating conditions in the depart ment of labor, the "reds" announced at 11 o'clock today that they would have, no more trials until their "de mands" were granted. And after a day of proceedings which were char-at-terized by Congressman Sicgel a:s a "farce," the "reds" still were main taining their point. In an investigation of the "strike" which was immediately begun by the committee, whose members, hailing from the west, expressed frank aston ishment that such things were pos sible, several reasons were developed why the problem that confronts the present administrative officials at the island is difficult. In the first place, it appeared the three leaders of the strikers and nine others were men who had been ori inally arrested by the department of labor at periods ranging from three months to two years ago. their trials had and the papers " forwarded ' 'to Washing-ton, where final action had apparently been either forgotten or neglected.

He was about to leave the island for the mainland. At the committee's request he told his clients the law required them to attend their hearings. All but seven of the 66 segregated radicals then reiterated their refusal to attend the hearing until the barrier was removed. Mr. Uhl Informed Schorr that the iron mesh would remain in place and announced that the deportation hear ings would be continued tomorrow. Just how he would solve the puzzle of identifying the radicals he did not announce. Their counsel professed not to know all of his clients by sight.

Crawford. Arctic hunter and trapper and member of the second Stefansson expedition, is ..f r.t v frnxpn north for the first time in 15 years and expresses sur prise that the general public credits the existence of a lost tribe of .Scan dinavians in the Arctic known gen erally as Stefansson's blonde Eskimos. The so-called blonde tsKimos un covered by Stefansson, he says, ana he declares that Stefansson docs not disagree with him, are nothing more than a "throw back" as he terms n, of the first white explorers that went into the north. Crawford was witn Stefansson when he ci.mc across the blondes" and had an opportunity to tudy them and discuss them with the great explorer. Only Few Are Fund. Mr. Stefansson himself will tell you that- mere is lime pi of these natives being descendants of Eric the Red or any other of the ancient Vikings." Mr. Crawford said tonight. "On Victoria Land there are probably three tribes or villages of natives at least in which these quaint Eskimos are to be found. There are less than a dozen so far as we were l able to learn in the whole land. They had gray eyes, light eyebrows, reddish brown hair, and their skin was slightly lighter than , thtir brethren, but the skin color would not be noticed at first. It is so like the color of the other natives. "The natives made it known that they had never seen white men be fore and it is very probable that they did not, as Mr. Stefansson's party was undoubtedly the first in that nart of the world in their time. Their r.sinm. however, did see white men. probably men looking for new land, who did not live to get back to civilization. Such expeditions are not infrequent in the history of the north. The recurrence of the features of the whites in different villages is rare. "There was one little girl who pos sessed the most pronounced marking of all. She was the daughter of two old natives who were as dusky as any of the northern natives, whose hair (Concluded on Page 15. Column 3.)

The supply of Thanksgiving turkeys from this county was considerably under the number usually disposed of by growers here for the holiday sea son, as the aggregate results demon strate. A careful survey of the market in dicates that something less than 5000 birds were marketed by producers at this point last week, against a total number of approximately 10,000 sold during the same period last year. The total weight of the turkeys was in the neighborhood of 50.000 pounds, as buyers . state that ten pounds each would be a fair average. It is believed that as many more were marketed at Oakland, while probably 2000 more were sold at other railway points in the county. The -birds were pronounced excellent quality and the prevailing price paid to producers was 41 ii cents per pound.

There was no word today from the Mexican gov ernment in answer to the sharp note from the state department demand ing the immediate release of William O. Jenkins. American consular agent at Pucbla. All day officials waited for a note they thought might be handed to them by thB Mexican em bassy here, in view of reports Sunday night that a long dispatch relating to the Jenkins case had reached the embassy from Mexico City.

Note tliNunsied In Mexico. The department was in constant communication today with the Amer ican embassy in Mexico City and was advised that the cabinet has discussed the American note and called Gover nor Cabrera into conference. Gover nor Cabrera is a brother of Luis Ca brera, secretary of the treasury Ii Carranza's cabinet, and known to be one of the most bitter anti-Ameri cans. President Carransia. aai found the situation to be so acute that he has returned to Mexico City from Qucre taro to take part in the consideration of the Jenkins case, reports today said. Mexican officials have caused re ports to be circulated that the gov ernment waB amply ijuatif ied in hold ing Jenkins. No report has been made to this government or its rep resentatives, however, as to the na ture of the evidence on which the ' American consular agent was locked up a second time.

While the ican dead in France must be left the graves they now occupy until the French are ready to exhume their own dead, which it is hoped will be before January 1, 1922. Tho foreign office has promised to consider the latest request of the American goy ernment for the return of its fallen; soldiers, but ter the following offi cial announcement was made: "It has been definitely decided that the allies who fell together for the same cause should remain together in death until circumstances permit of the returning of the bodies to the families for whom they sacrificed themselves." The proposed law forbidding the ex humation of soldier dead for three years did not pass at the last session of the chamber of deputies, but the foreign office expects that it will be adopted soon. This bill specifies delay ' in exhumation of three years from the promulgation of the law, but it is expected that this period will be shortened. At the foreign office it is said to be probahle that the exhuma tion will commence considerably be fore January, 1922. The French government is anxious to hasten matters, as French families are also pressing, but there are thou sands of unidentified dead and trans portation facilities are utterly inade quate to move the 1. 500,000 bodies in local cemeteries. The British and Belgian govern ments also are urging for the return of their dead, but France considers it only fair to treat all countries alike.

SocialinBt Are Aggrensive. The socialists, proud of their recent victory, ara eager to continue what they call t'lcir "march forward." The older, more authoritative members of the party, however, such as Deputy Turati. leader of the intransigeants; Deputy Trcvcr and Signor Madigli an ia, a re against any excesses. The new elements which have- en tered the socialist parliamentary group are declared to be animated by revolutionary sentiments and to favor an extreme policy which in their opinion will inevitably lead to the ad vent of bolshevism in Italy. This section now is undoubtedly the most numerous. If not the most im portant one in the party. It is con sidered that it will almost certainly assume command of the party because of the audacity of its members. HImmIdr of King Planned. Leaders of 'this section are quoted as declaring that, comprising as they do more than 150 "live wires" among the 550 deputies, the remainder will not dare oppose them and that they will be able to accomplish "some su preme act ' of rebellion which will overthrow the tottering government of the bourgeoise." Formerly the socialists never at tended the opening of parliament, absenting themselves so that they might avoid being present when the king delivered his speech from the throne and to escape taking the pre scribed oath in the king's presence.

Nevertheless, it has had the effect of making the respon sible authorities restless and anxious. It has been conceded among them , tii at there is no measure which it would be possible to take to prevent 150 members whistling and shouting and making it impossible for the king to be heard.
